7:04 am
there is a paragraph or four in the u.n. security council's resolution regarding libya that allows them to do so and even though two foreign ministers have the same goal in the end of the day and that is of course a peaceful and democratic libya russian foreign minister does not agree with the resolution itself. solution nine hundred seventy three contains chapter full which allows anyone to do anything this very champ's it was the cause of our problems with the mandate and all other aspects we support it and as we have warned now we're facing rather unpleasant situations when it can be interpreted in most different ways i think moscow and paris and other u.n. security council members are interested for the body to release concise documents to the international law does not need to put up with ambiguity meanwhile watches embassador to nature was speaking in moscow and he said he believes and ground operation in libya is just around the corner and that's operation is going to prolong the conflict and severely worsen the situation in the region in general

7:06 am
hostilities in the country meanwhile the representatives of georgian media try to draw parallels between what's happening in libya and what happened in south asia in august two thousand and eight but the foreign minister lavrov gave a very long and detailed explanation how the situation is different he said that's after georgia's assault on south a city president sarkozy and mitzvot if signed a plan according to which every point russia has fulfilled or georgian site did not and that's the only way to protect civilians in republics of south ossetia and applies it was for russia to recognize them as independent states. of the international criminal court they see the warrant for the arrest of the libyan leader colonel gadhafi and his son saif al islam the crackdown on protesters in february but in an exclusive interview. that the hague is nothing more than a sham. the score is it is an economic court come on the
7:07 am

7:08 am
quelling by any means including by the use of lethal force the demonstrations of civilians against gadhafi regime which started in february two thousand and eleven there's such a policy exist. among the accuse me of killing people everybody knows. they are accusing me of using force or because i'm not in the in the army i'm not in the government so for me to be responsible for killing people it was a big joke second to the people who died at the beginning one hundred fifty nine and most of the people died when the attack which is right and this would happen anywhere anywhere in the world in russia in america in france in germany in italy if. people in the street move towards the military side trying to street a militia or arms. if you will prevent this what happened in benghazi direct
7:09 am
question did you or your father. all the army to kill protesters of course not this number one no second. my father. called the general bob but there isn't because you know he's one of the leaders or whatever we've called many times don't use force with people he told us they are doubting the middle size the god of fire if you don't see the order to work to defend themselves and to defend. their barracks and there are camps. where you can see more of our exclusive interview in the next few hours here on asio you can always find us on our website r.t. dot com. greece is now set for a lifeline from the e.u. after parliament passed
7:10 am
a vote on how to implement tough new austerity measures the council tax hikes were a condition for twelve billion euro in additional rescue cash however the move sent thousands of angry protesters onto the streets of athens and asking sarah first reports pounds to sell off greek assets to the highest bidder also fanning the flames. greece is not for sale the message from a furious public has plans to sell off many greek assets pushes ahead quick so incredibly proud of their heritage many people feel that the privatization proposals is simply stripping greece of its public assets to change it for grabs for lenders banks water companies and chain operators amongst many more a stake in the large telecommunications company eighty it's also the sale with the . o.t. there's been a continuous crime for the past twenty years they've sold off our companies piece
7:11 am
by piece and now we only own a small percentage but that small stake is extremely important to the greek people but they want to sell even though it. is a huge turn for the present government who were heavily opposed to the sale of eighty shares when they were acting as open. they called it a national crime when the previous government sold shares now they want to do the same and sell the shares now at a low price we don't think we'll see investment or any development of it to you we think the only thing others will care about is profit profit profit. the continuous calls from the public to refuse the aggressive privatization proposals set forth by the choice to seemingly gone and hurt their presser from the european union is the remember we would talk about blackmail i guess the greek government critics have argued that they banking and they are acting out to self-interest keeping profits private it's just a loss is to say she lies nothing you hear it's not like greeks have to stretch
7:12 am
back into deep history to figure this out we can look at latin american we can look at countries all over the world where the i.m.f. has come in and sacrificed and plundered the nation for corporate consolidation and prime minister cap and trade stake of avoiding the countries cannot sit all cost that many are now asking just how high a price he's willing to pay someone dies there's something very tragic occurs that's going to be a catalyst for i think a fall of this government the e.u. has stated fairly there's no plan b. to the a stereo he measured as being enacted buses theory bills on the streets might be time they thought of one. r.t. athens. greece are now facing a twenty eight billion euro in cuts to be implemented over the next five. welcome the plan saying it will help the country get back on top for conferee. say from the u.s. based trends research institute says your therapy measures that to me
7:13 am
a way to rescue the banks out the people's expense. you could see some are what killed capitalism in four simple words too big to fail. and that's what's going on the banks are failing and they want the people to bail them out because they after all they don't like to take a hit these big guys so they call it measures and privatization the i.m.f. is nothing more than the international mafia federation it alone shocks of last resort and the people know it they call it privatization adults call it stealing valuable public assets and selling it to your friends really cheap the politicians only represent the people that give the most amount of money so that people know that show that it's going to continue to be a war and the greek people know that if you don't stand up they're going to blow
7:14 am

7:25 am
i hear. time that in just a few minutes people of l. and his guests debate but the nato has a clear vision of how to end the war in libya without more civilian casualties thousand cross-talk after our business but it's. how i welcome to our business bullets and here are our thanks for joining me britain has introduced a new ad bribery law covering overseas operations of companies doing business in the u.k. it makes little difference for large international firms who already comply with title legislation in other countries but smaller companies from emerging economies are likely to see high pressure now for white houses i'm joined by robert m.a. of covington and burling a long piece for me head of anti corruption at the u.k.'s serious fraud office thanks for joining the program so my first question is the law a challenge for russian companies would london link and why. well it certainly can
7:26 am
be a challenge for russian companies and really any other company with a link to the u.k. the law says that any company that carries on a business or even part of a business in the u.k. can be subject to the new corporate event and that really is quite a significant shift from where we were yesterday in fact the law b.c. coming into force today and it is really giving the prosecutors an extended reach and the serious fraud office in the u.k. the prosecutor for the bribery out house come out and said even this morning that they will be looking to make it a priority to go after foreign companies that disadvantage british business interests overseas. and here do you think the law could help russia fight with corruption because it is a problem in this country. well i think it may well play its part but the bribery act is only one part of a long list of obligations that companies have internationally and these
7:27 am
obligations are there to ensure the companies act transparently ethically and with integrity and both in their own countries and also internationally including in russia so if a company's activities in russia put it in conflict with those obligations well that company will have to sit back and think whether or not it can do business in russia and that really isn't where russia wants to be you want to be able to say that russia was a great place to do business and i know that russia of course as your viewers will be aware passed a new law banning bribery of foreign public officials and it's also being embraced by the o.e.c.d. and that's of course very welcome but i think the key here is that in order to remove an impediment to inward investment russia would really need to tackle any domestic corruption first before it goes after the foreign public officials and if it can do that then i think companies will have much more confidence in investing
7:28 am
in the country and without fear that they're going to be criminally prosecuted back at home. and how do you think that this law could make the u.k. market less attractive for companies from emerging economies from other countries. no i don't believe that it will companies with the right risk mitigation policies and procedures in place will really have little to worry about there is a defense in the act of having adequate procedures that protects use a shield against wrongful actions for the employee or third parties but if you're asking me where the bribery act makes you less attractive for corrupt companies from those emerging markets well in that case the answer is a resounding yes ok so what about the rest of europe do you think that this law could spur like an anti corruption wave across other countries in the e.u. . while rather than spurring a wave i think the bribe to really is injecting momentum into what is already started there's been
7:29 am
a growing recognition now for some time that the damage the real serious damage that corruption does to companies to countries and companies both on a human level where the citizens don't get their basic needs met because of the greed of corrupt officials and also from a country's perspective where the rule of law is on the mind where economic prosperity is stilted because of corruption. no one can claim a legitimate interest in seeing foreign corrupt officials pocketing their nation's wealth while their fellow citizens live in abject poverty that's simply not right and i think that's really where the bribe react comes into its own it's really a new chapter in what has already been happening across the board in force went in across europe germany the u.k. we've seen a real upswing but also the wider world if you look at canada they've now had a new corruption conviction which they can boast about and obviously the u.s.
7:30 am
for the last seven or eight years has really been blazing the trail in this field with last year taking a reported two billion dollars in fines from companies and having their first criminal conviction in front of a jury of a company. and really this is a trend that will continue ok well that's always time to time we have for thank you robert i may of coming to. the former head of anticorruption of the u.k. serious fraud fraud office thanks very much for that update. and that's our business update for this hour but they'll forget we'll be back with more in about forty five minutes meanwhile you can always log the website at prime lost or is there.
